OPEN Foundation

The OPEN Foundation is a Dutch NGO that organizes ICPR every two years. The aim of the organisation is to advance psychedelic research and (eventually) integrate it into regular mental health care.

The OPEN Foundation

“Founded in 2007, the OPEN Foundation is the leading nonprofit organisation dedicated to advancing psychedelic research and therapies in the Netherlands and Europe. We bring together and educate professionals, policymakers, and the public through conferences, trainings and membership programmes, along with conducting and promoting rigorous interdisciplinary research into psychedelics.”


The OPEN Foundation (Stichting OPEN in Dutch) was founded in 2007 and has since organized five conferences, with a sixth taking place this fall.
